A Dollar A Day charitable giving project update : May report : over US$ 1100 donated

in #charity6 years ago

The first month of A Dollar A Day has now finished.

I do think it was a great success.

The value of SBDs almost halved between the beginning and the end of the month. However the project still managed to distribute over US$1100 equivalent to 12 good causes around the world during the course of the month.

This first month has very much demonstrated the power of steem and the value of this approach to fundraising. This has given me the confidence and the impetus to continue developing the project to see where we can take it.

I intend to make this a semi-formal monthly report of the donations that have come in and the daily grants that have been given out to ensure the accounting is all totally transparent.

This transparency of course can be readily verified as all transactions go through the public wallet.

Donations Received

During May a total of 324 SBD was received from 25 different donors.

Additionally I contributed 131 SBD from post rewards and my personal funds.

My great thanks to all the generous steemians who have donated SBDs to the project so far.

I would like to give particular thanks to the witnesses who have come on board to support the project - @aggroed, @quochuy, @steemcommunity (run by @abh12345 and @paulag) and @yensesa.

Developer of SteemMonsters @yabamatt has joined us as another witness supporter in June.

Thanks also to @hopehuggs who is supporting the project by giving daily donations directly to people in Venezuela.

Special thanks also to @ausbitbank, @beanz, @canadian-coconut, @eturnerx, @markwhittam, @roxane and @starkerz for their generous upvotes on the project posts. These are being recycled back into enhancing the daily donations.

My special thanks also to all the people in the projects we are supporting who are volunteering their time to do great work on their projects.

How you can help

The success of this project obviously depends on the generosity of the people of steem.

It is based on the little and often idea of giving - a dollar (SBD) a day is all it takes to get involved as a donor.

If you can give for a month, or for a week, that will be fantastic. But if you can only spare a few SBD for a few days that is still most welcome. The project is designed to run on donations of all sizes and frequencies.

For witnesses this is an ideal way to distribute some of your witness earnings back to the community. If you are able to donate regularly you can become an official witness supporter of the project. I will shortly begin featuring the witness supporters of the project more prominently.

I am also always on the lookout for new causes and projects to support - particularly in countries where we are not yet giving any support. If you know of any causes that might be suitable please leave a comment below or message me on Discord (Pennsif#9921).

June is my one year anniversary on steem month. I am delighted to be able to contribute back through A Dollar A Day to the amazing steem community I have been lucky enough to find myself a part of it.

It would be fantastic if more people join the project as donors this month.

A great big ask I know but wouldn't it wonderful if we could reach US$2000 of donations this month...

Thank-you @pennsif for submitting this post with the #familyprotection tag. It has been UPVOTED by @familyprotection and RESTEEMED TO OUR Community Supporters.

"Child Protection Agencies" are taking children away from their loving families.

Contact @pennsif if you would like to know more about A Dollar A Day.

It is not enough to give a thousand thanks, at least not for me, I would like to return all that help, but I still can not, not as I would like, I only have one thing I can do and keep working on my DudeLand Project, if it were not for all of you , it would not have been possible to continue building that tower of ideas and make them come true. You are the heart of the project and the engine that makes my desire to continue working every day more difficult.

For a while I had the great luck of meeting wonderful people full of faith, who have given me 100% of their support at all times, and I do not know how happy I am to know that I am counting on you. I never imagined that these people would give a 360 degree turn to the lives of many children in my country (Venezuela). @pennsif

This is exactly what Steemit is all about and makes me feel like the time I spend on the platform is helping build something important. You are a giver, not a taker, and Steemians should learn from your example. Resteemed.

Thank you for your good words and the resteem.

The steem platform should be nicked named a community of lovers who are willing to help people in their little way not knowing it means alot to them and with our little as @steemminna, the needy around us will understand what it means be loved.

Thank you @pennsif for being a distributor of that love.

My birthday is coming up. I think that's a pretty good cause.😂

I hope you know I'm joking.

well done @pennsif, beautiful work you are doing. I respect team players like nothing else.. and you are such a star in that respect.. <3 xx

That's good, it's really a great job the project @votovzla can join this initiative.
